Adding an External Application as a Trusted Application

Adding an External Application as a Trusted Application

You can also add external applications external to the MDM Hub trusted application framework.
  1. Implement and configure a custom certificate provider.
    You can configure a custom certificate provider when you install or upgrade the MDM Hub. Otherwise, use the security configuration utility to change the certificate provider configuration.
  2. Provide an implementation of
    to retrieve the private keys from the following users:
    • Application users associated with the external client
    • Application users associated with the MDM Hub
  3. In the Hub Console, add a user account for the application user that corresponds to the external application.
    Ensure that you select the
    Application user
    check box in the
    Add User
    dialog box and that you use only lowercase characters for the name of the user account.
  4. Register a public certificate with the application user account.
  5. Use the external application to trigger a request.
    If you want to use certificate-based authentication, set the request name as <application name>/<user name>. The <application name> must be the same as that used in step step 3. The <user name> is the name of the MDM Hub user that triggers the request.
